Dr. Sylvia Rimm's groundbreaking research on what was behind the success of over 1,000 women led to her best-selling book See Jane Win. Now, she combines the lessons, tips, and advice gleaned from her study, along with the girlhood experiences of See Jane Win research participants like Sandra Day O'Connor and Jane Pauley, in a book designed especially for young girls, SEE JANE WIN FOR GIRLS: A SMART GIRL'S GUIDE TO SUCCESS. But, as Dr. Rimm's findings show, even the most capable "I CAN" girl will benefit immensely from the help of a parent, teacher, or caring adult. Dr. Rimm suggests these ten tips to encourage and stimulate girls' self-esteem and confidence, and help them to become eager to learn and ready to lead.
